Gebbie to play key role in preliminary final

Papua New Guinea Kumul Edene Gebbie will be looking to play a key role for the Wynnum Manly Seagulls when they take on the Townsville Blackhawks in the first Preliminary Final of the Intrust Super Cup this weekend.

The winner will take the first spot in the grand final on Sunday September 29th.

Gebbie has stamped his mark in the finals series with two tries in the first week of the finals when the Seagulls lost to the Burleigh Bears 34 – 32, and a try last week when they defeated the Redcliffe Dolphins.

Gebbie is one of the most potent attacking backs in the game leading the competition in Tackle Breaks (152), Run Metres (4,186 metres), Kick Return Metres (1,071 metres) and has scored 18 tries in 20 appearances in 2019.

Meanwhile, Kumuls prop Luke Page will also be charging for the Burleigh Bears when they take on the Sunshine Coast Falcons for the second spot in the grand final.

The Bears play the Falcons on Sunday.
